Trivia fact! Leonardo DiCaprio was originally offered the role of Dirk Diggler. He liked the screenplay but turned it down because he had already signed on to do Titanic. However, it was DiCaprio who suggested Mark Wahlberg for the role.

And number 4 on my list.  A spectacular, almost epic, film with fantastic performances all around.  Just love this movie.  Also perhaps the best soundtrack of the decade.  Perfect songs used throughout.

Best part of Boogie Nights for me? John C. Reilly dancing his ass off in the sound booth while Dirk Diggler sings the Transformers theme song.

You unironically wrote "lulz", therefore your opinion is invalid.

I'm sure my opinion was invalid long before that... but thanks for noticing my unirony!

mmmmmmm rollergirl... Boogie Nights is great... it's like Walhberg sold his soul to the devil... "Let me be a good actor this one time and then take it all away... I'm sure I can still ride the coattails for the next two decades!!!!"

I loved Trainspotting, but it didn't make my top 25.  Figures that the MPAA would cut a scene that shows a woman having pleasure.  Have you guys ever seen Young Adam?  Another good Ewan McGregor movie.  Given a NC-17 for sex scenes, I think mostly because he pleasures Tilda Swinton.  What a bunch of crock.

Didn't care for American Beauty.

Loved Dazed and Confused still do, that's why I had it at number 1.  And the South Park movie.  My mom loved that movie too, she would sit and watch it with me.  That's why I can't stand the old fuddy duddys that pinch up their faces at the language.

And Boogie Nights, excellent!  I had it on mine, but really didn't know if the movie was that well liked.

Boogie Nights is one of those movies I keep forgetting that I really, really like. It's an excellent film that has a rather amazing cast (random note: much as I have a general distaste for Family Guys theses days and also totally love Phillip Seymour Hoffman, I'm constantly using the line "That fat guy from Boogie Nights" in situations that call/don't call for it).

Really should watch Magnolia sometime, now that I think of it.

And to think the South Park movie came out only 2 months after Columbine. I imagine there was an uproar about the movie because of that, right (I'm just a young'in here)

No, like others mentioned The Matrix took a lot of flack, as did  1995's The Basketball Diaries, due to a scene where DiCaprio shoots up a schoolroom. The connection you're making to South Park probably comes from Matt Stone's presence in Bowling for Columbine.

Probably so.  Love Bowling for Columbine and Michael Moore's point that bowiling could be blamed for the shooting as much as anything else.

What I remember about this time is the witchhunt of Marilyn Manson.  People still love to blame him for all the world's woes.

People are always quite misguided when it comes to assigning blame for tragedies. Just the usual knee-jerk reaction that eventually blows over once everyone (or at least most people) finally wise up and act sensible again.

Let's end today on a happy note, shall we?

Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.

#26 - Schindler's List


(98 Points) 5 of 32 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 Artie

Plot Summary - The true story of Czech born Oskar Schindler, a businessman who tried to make his fortune during the Second World War by exploiting cheap Jewish labour, but ended up penniless having saved over 1000 Polish Jews from almost certain death during the holocaust.

Release Date - December 15th 1993

Domestic Gross - $96,065,768

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/dwfIf1WMhgc" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/dwfIf1WMhgc</a>


Trivia fact! Billy Wilder contributed to the first draft of the screenplay. Wilder had many relatives who died in the Holocaust, and tried to convince Steven Spielberg to let him direct the film. Spielberg was already prepared to shoot the film in Poland, and turned it down.

Dagnabbit.  Just realised I have an assignment tomorrow night along with work during the day.  I'll have time to continue the LOC, which I've got a bunch in reserve for, but the supplemental will be pushed back a day while I finish up on it.  Probably at work.

Schindler's List is excellent, obviously.

Yeah, probably. I still need to see The Basketball Diaries, I forgot about that one.

I just watched 12 Monkeys yesterday for the first time. It's odd. Not sure how I felt about it.

Is it sticking with you?  Do you keep thinking about it?  I love it when a movie does that to me.

A little bit. Not as much as you'd think though.

Nothing from my list here. I know people loved it, but I loathed Dazed and Confused with a passion. Schindler's didn't make my list but I thought it was a great movie
